Shed Roof Mountain Cabin Methow Valley

1200 SF

Located between Mazama and Winthrop in the Methow Valley, Washington, this 1,200 square foot cabin with 300 square foot garage is sited on the top of a hillside with dramatic panoramic views of the valley floor below. The rectangular plan is oriented on an east-west axis to take advantage of solar orientation and views. The outdoor dining area is protected from the occasional hilltop wind gust by the garage, and the house has a single roof plane that serves as a protector and a connector between the two forms. The bedroom wing is nestled under the lower roof plan and has an outdoor shower area to the east.
